Chicken broccoli patties
Chicken breast + steamed broccoli = boring fitness food! So I tried to mix the two of them together with 2 eggs in a food processor. I put the batter in a silicon mold for tartlets to cook in the oven for about 20 minutes, at the maximum temperature of my owen, 250 degrees Celsius (480 degrees Fahrenheit).
I was quite pleased with the result, those patties are less boring than eating broccoli and chicken apart. It may be a good idea to add some spices to make them more interesting. They can also be eaten cold or taken to work in a lunch box.
